US Prez Obama may travel to south Argentina on coup anniversary

Argentina’s foreign minister is saying that President Barack Obama may visit a tourist city in Patagonia on March 24, the 40th anniversary of a military coup in the South American country.

Since Obama’s March 23-24 visit was announced weeks ago, human rights groups have demanded Obama stay away on the 24th.

They argue America supported the brutal 1976-1983 dictatorship.

Foreign Minister Susana Malcorra told Radio Vorterix Friday that on March 24 Obama may visit an Argentine satellite company in Bariloche, a popular tourist city in southwestern Argentina. She gave no other details.

President Mauricio Macri said Thursday that Obama would spend a few days in Bariloche. He gave no other details.

The official trip schedule has not been released. The US Embassy in Argentina has declined to comment.
